List Of Republican's (Update:Add Gingrich) Now Throwing Romney Under The Bus (So Far) Jindal/Christie/Martinez/Cruz/Pawlenty/Rubio

UPDATE:here's Newt Gingrich putting the boot into the still warm political body of Mitt Romney: 
"Newt Gingrich took an opportunity to express mass displeasure at Mitt Romney’s explanation to campaign donors who said he lost because Obama gave gifts to voters."

Tim Pawlenty (who jumped the Romney ship mid-campaign) Mitt Romney's Gifts Didn't Elect Obama"

Bobby Jindal "I absolutely reject the notion  (Romney's comments that "gifts" elected Obama ) 

Ted Cruz Mitt Romney "French Kissed Obama"
